Since D&D Next came out, I figured out I should pick up some 4e books before they become completely unavailable, since my gaming company loves 4e. (Atm I own 3 core books, Neverwinter campaign and Adventurer's Vault. Neverwinter is amazing, Adventurer's Vault on the other hand I regret buying.) However there are quite a lot of 4e products and they are all expensive and confusing. Did I mention expensive?
So which books are worthy of hard-copy purchase and will be useful for 4e Forgotten Realms settings for years to come? And why?
Things that I am looking for:
- Something that will be reread and used many times while making adventures;
- Inspiration for building great plots and worlds around FR and Neverwinter;
- Books that concentrate on atmosphere, not tactics rich combats; (4e gives that by default)
- Books that help fit ideas into 4e frame;
- No player sourcebooks (And anything else that character builder can replace easily.)
